B Angie B
In April 1991, the album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Hip-hop/R&B charts and #132 on the Pop charts, with album sales peaking at a mediocre 137,000 copies. The sales did not quite satisfy Capitol, and Boyd was dropped from the label a little over a year later. She appeared in the Kid 'n Play farce Class Act and sang on the soundtrack title track "Class Act (Work That Body)". The title track was also released as a video. B Angie B released a second album in 1995 under the Bust It label (with independent distribution).
She dropped the first "B" and was known as Angie B. The album did not make an impact on radio or charts. Her 1991 solo debut B Angie B on Capitol records was reissued in 2005 with a bonus DVD along with previous releases from former label mates Oaktown 357. After its 2005 re-issue, the album sold an additional 4,000 copies as of 2008. After becoming disillusioned with the music industry as a whole, she quietly left her recording career behind.
In the summer of 2009, new music was released on her Myspace page (www.myspace.com/bangiebmusic), including a remake of "Ring My Bell". She has stated that she does not intend to release an album, preferring live performance and internet traffic. On the day of May 9, 2012, B Angie B released a follow up single titled "I Wanna Be (Right Here With You)." Read more on Last.fm.
